The Walt Disney Company has just revealed some exciting news, announcing that an entirely new take on a classic attraction is headed guests’ way. That’s right, a brand-new Haunted Mansion attraction is on the way.

The Walt Disney Company is constantly changing and evolving, both in terms of the films it produces and the experiences it provides guests inside its theme parks. In the last decade, both the Disneyland and Walt Disney World resorts have been significantly upgraded, receiving massive expansions like Pandora – The World of Avatar and Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge, with more exciting projects on the horizon. From Magic Kingdom and Animal Kingdom to Disney California Adventure, there’s no end in sight to all of the amazing rides, attractions, shops, stores, restaurants, and bars you can visit at the Disney parks.

However, a conversation about Disney park attractions would not be complete without bringing up what is arguably the most iconic one of them all.

The Haunted Mansion is by far one of, if not the most recognizable theme park attractions in the world, with its only competition also being other Disney rides such as Pirates of the Caribbean, Splash Mountain, and “it’s a small world.” Since it first opened back in 1969 at the original Disneyland Resort, hundreds of millions of guests have passed through its doors to embark on a spooky yet chillingly fun experience.

Haunted Mansion can be found at Disneyland, Walt Disney World, Tokyo Disneyland, Hong Kong Disneyland, and Disneyland Paris, with each version offering a distinct and unique story, setting, and cast of characters.

However, a new Haunted Mansion experience is on the way, with Disney breaking the news earlier this morning.

That’s right, an all-new experience based on Disney’s classic Haunted Mansion dark ride is on its way, but not in the way you might expect. This new experience will be found aboard Disney’s newest cruise ship, the Treasure, allowing guests to relax and have a drink in a ghoulishly-themed space.

Disney Cruise Line guests can also visit Castaway Cay, Disney’s private island. Disney Cruise Line departs from various different Ports, such as Port Canaveral in Florida, New York, New York, Galveston, Texas, and many more. For more information regarding Disney Cruise Line, click here.

This news was just revealed by Scott Gustin, who shared several photos and more details regarding this attraction on X (Twitter). The news was broken by Entertainment Weekly, who shared a stunning full-length video showing off this new space.

We have to say that a brand-new experience based on Haunted Mansion is surprising but definitely welcome. This decision makes sense as it ties in nicely with Disney’s Haunted Mansion film, which was released in the summer of 2023.

The Disney Treasure will join Disney’s impressive fleet of five other cruise ships, which include the Disney Dream, Wonder, Fantasy, Magic, and Wish. Disney Cruise Line started back in 1998 with its first ship, the Disney Magic. Since then, Disney’s fleet of cruise ships has grown significantly, now featuring five ships in total, with two more on the way. The Disney Treasure is expected to officially set sail in 2024.
